Blue Fluorite Beads
The ancient Egyptians used fluorite in statues and in carving scarabs. Artifacts of carved fluorite have been found in the ruins of Pompeii. In addition to being used as a semi-precious gemstone, fluorite is used as a source of fluorine for the fluoridation of water. fluorite is also used instead of glass in some high performance telescopes and camera lens elements.
Fluorite comes in many colors, the most common being transparent, green, yellow, and purple. Often, different colors occur within distinct zones in a single crystal. Our blue fluorite beads are a happy blue-green color.
Chemically, Fluorite is calcium fluoride, a compound of the elements calcium and fluorine. However, although it contains fluorine, its name does not come from its chemical composition. Instead, it received its name from the Latin word “fluere”, which means “to flow”, because fluorite melts easily.
